Have used it a couple of times this winter in freezing Temps. Stove makes it very comfortable. Would highly recommend it to others!
12 Man Tipi
From Calvin Halladay of La Grande, Oregon on 11/6/2016.
Been using my 12 man Tipi for years and we call it "The Hilton". This thing is absolutely bomb proof and the perfect size. Between 3-4 guys, we split up the tipi, liner and stakes, center pole, and large box wood stove. Once we arrive at our destination we construct the Tipi and there is ample room for 4 guys, firewood and every bit of our gear. Below zero temperatures and we can sit on our beds wearing a t-shirt, I've had it in downpours and snowstorms dropping a foot overnight. This thing is bombproof! Buy the liner, do it right, and when you get home, let it dry before storing. I have no doubt it will serve me for many years to come.
Tipi great, liner not so great
From Anonymous of Anchorage, Alaska on 10/2/2016.
I used the Tipi for the first time on my moose hunt this fall. It took the directions, a phone call to Kifaru, a youtube video, and a couple of times setting it up to finally get it right. The tipi did great. They put some great stovepipe holes in the top. Overall I thought the tipi was pretty good. It realistically has space for three hunters and their gear. Any more than that and it would get real tight. The liner: what a joke. It served its purpose to stop the condensation from falling on us however it was very cumbersome to install. They should have used a clip or a snap of some sort. You have to tie the top and bottom in multiple spots which takes a long time. It was really poorly conceived. In fact, the thought of doing that again is a bit daunting. Something so simple could have been done so much better. For as expensive as this tent is surely they could have a better way to install the liner. The tipi gets four stars. The liner gets zero stars. I am going to call the company and request they change the liner attachment and maybe a refund on my liner.

I am very impressed with the 12 man Tipi. It holds up to wind extremely well. I like the size for four guys and their gear. I am also impressed with the Large box stove. It works very well to heat up the Tipi. Both are great products that I would recommend to anyone. Meade Dominick/ Outfitter and Professional Guide WY BG-122

While 12 people is a stretch, this tent is comfortable for up to 6 adults. Very light, but solid tent. For winter camping, recommend the liner. If setting up on top of snow, recommend getting snow/sand stakes. The stakes that come with the tent work well when going into the ground, including frozen ground.

I use mine for horse packing. Works well in the PNW changing weather. The large stove will drive you out of the tent.
2/14/2015 – I'm worried about condensation inside the tent , I've been in some tough wet and cold weather , and there was so much condensation . . .
Response From Kifaru Intl.: We use Soar-Coat, a lightweight rip-stop nylon fabric used for hot air balloons and parachutes, for our tents. It will not breath like Gore-Tex. To prevent water dripping on you inside the tent we offer a liner that creates a space between the outer tent and the liner.
